I stayed at The Happy Cretan over the August bank holiday this year and have been meaning to write because we had such a great trip. Hotel rooms, food and pool were fab, as were Dimitris and team. It was a really relaxing trip, all I wish was that we'd stayed longer. Thank you.

Visited Happy Cretan in October, if you want a quiet hotel with stunning views, great service and spotlessly clean then you have found the perfect hotel. The hotel is small and friendly and offers great service, the staff are very hard working, and led by Dimitris and Aspen nothing is to much trouble for them. We arrived late in the... More

We had booked in for just 3 nights but within 24 hours had decided to stay for the full 6 nights we were in Crete. Lovely rooms, stunning views, friendly, helpful staff and tasty food and the price is extremely reasonable! We would stay here again at the drop of a hat! It really does pay to have the use... More

My family and I have stayed in the Happy Cretan for 2 weeks in Aug/Sep 2013. It was fantastic holiday and we were overall delighted with the hotel. The hotel is situated on a hill with a stunning sea view, we had one bedroom apartment with two balconies, and we had a great sea view from both of them. The... More

Spent 10 days at this great place in September 13. Probably the most relaxing holiday I have ever had. I cannot recommend it too highly. I have been to Crete 4 times and this is the nicest of the lot. True, it is a little way out of town but if you cant manage a little walk before supper you... More

We loved the Happy Cretan! The food was lovely(and suprising!), staff were super friendly and helpful, the pool/jacuzzi are great...the only potential issue was the longish(20 min) walk to agia pelagia and to be honest we didnt find ourselves straying from the hotel too often(it was that great). We would definitely visit again..the only downside being the company, damn the... More

The location is very good (for people with cars). The beach is not far, the airport is 20min driving, the rooms are big and the staff is very friendly and nice. Our apartment (we have 3 children) was big enough but it was a bit old with a bed smell whenever we opened the water stream. In addition the bath... More
